In the past i have taken cannabis.
While with quetiapine and with risperidone. But no interaction happened.
But i have not tried with clozapine.

I have been using cannabis along with anti psychotics although not with clozapine. Nothing to make note of. However i would say that cannabis can trigger feelings of paranoia and i would not recommend it if you worry or have feelings about the world which could make you vunerable to anxiety or panic attacks.

I've never heard that cannabis has an interaction with antipsychotics, but I have heard that it interacts with schizophrenia. I heard somewhere that people with schizophrenia should never use cannabis. I just don't remember when or where I heard this.

If the reaction occurs in the blood between cannabis and clozapine . What should be the treatment to do as soon as possible.
